International Day of Books 27th July 2008

This year I want to publish a book - by any means possible. Because I consider myself to be an unselfish person (or perhaps because I don't want to go about this venture on my own) I want to take as many not yet famous unpublished writers with me as possible. Inspired by World Book Day, I plan on going about this process by publishing a novella of roughly 15,000 words and using Lulu to print it up. But Inkpot, I hear you say, what has this got to do with me? I'll tell you what...
If you are a writer and and want to get into print this year, this is the opportunity you have been waiting for. It is not going to be easy, it is not going to make you rich and famous, it will be hard work but it will be fun and it will get your work out to more people.
Ok, so if you are now interested, this is what you have to do...
1. Contact me and let me know
2. Write a novella of 15,000 words in any genre
3. Publicise the event in your country
4. Organise a book launch for July 27th and push all the International Day of Books books to as many people, venues and bookshops off and online as possible.
What I will do is give you as much help as possible with your book - proof reading, formatting, art work etc. and I will have the book launch in Ireland on the 27th July and push your book with mine throughout Ireland.
Interested? You should be! If not, please pass on the word and send people in my direction. I want to get as many authors from as many countries as possible involved in this.

Sounds good!

That's also DN day - I was doing my novella for that date anyway!

Hi Valpot, good to have you back blogging! Yes, that is also DN day, a double celebration or perhaps just another way to celebrate DN day. Glad you are in on it! :)
